The Plot:Ten years of Marianne and Johan's relationship are presented. We first meet them ten years into their marriage. He is a college professor, she a divorce lawyer. They say that they are happily married - unlike their friends Katarina and Peter who openly fight, especially when under the influence of alcohol - but there is a certain detached aloofness in the way they treat each other. In the next ten years, as they contemplate or embark upon divorce and/or known extramarital affairs, they come to differing understandings at each phase of their relationship of what they truly mean to each other. Regardless of if it's love or hate - between which there is a fine line - they also come to certain understandings of how they can best relate to each other, whether that be as husband and wife, friends, lovers or none of the above.

This looks like a great list in the making, can't wait for more updates.

Pretty sure Casino and Mulholland Drive are in the book. Well they're in my copy anyway...

Anyway, great idea for a list!

I agree with most of these, and there's a few I haven't seen yet...

Yeah, a bunch of these are masterpieces - it's a real puzzlement they didn't make the cut? (-and yet "Les Miserables" did WTF???)

there's a lot of different version of 1001...in my version Casino, Princess Mononoke and Million Dollar Baby are in my book. : ) good idea
